Nationals' Brady House: Promoted to Double-A
House was promoted to Double-A Harrisburg on Tuesday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
House dropped off a lot of top-100 prospect lists following a somewhat underwhelming showing in Low-A ball last year, but he broke through to High-A Wilmington last month and is now making a swift leap to the Nationals' Double-A affiliate. The 20-year-old third baseman carries a shiny .304/.369/.512 overall minor-league batting line through 226 plate appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Brady House: Two hits in High-A debut
House went 2-for-5 with a double and a run scored Saturday in his first game for High-A Wilmington.
The 20-year-old earned a promotion by slashing .280/.352/.476 through 37 games at Single-A Fredericksburg, improving both his strikeout and walks rates from the year before at the same level. House is a key part of the Nationals' rebuild, and while he isn't being fast-tracked to the majors, the 2021 first-round pick could start knocking on the door late in 2024 if he stays healthy....

Nationals' Brady House: Strong start to campaign
House is batting .333 (6-for-18) through six games with Single-A Fredericksburg with a double, a triple, two home runs, a stolen base and a 6:4 BB:K.
After posting a 12:59 BB:K in 45 games at Fredericksburg last year, the improved plate discipline might be the most noteworthy feature of House's hot start to 2023. The 2021 first-round pick won't turn 20 until early June, but if he stays healthy and keeps raking, he should receive a promotion to High-A for his birthday.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Brady House: Moving to third base
House will move from shortstop to third base this season, Andrew Golden of The Washington Post reports.
The No. 11 overall pick in the 2021 MLB Draft, House never seemed likely to stick at short and the Nationals have decided to go ahead and make the move with one of their top prospects. The 19-year-old missed a large chunk of the 2022 season with back issues but is now 100 percent healthy. He was at Single-A Fredericksburg for 45 games last season and figures to either head back there to start 2023 or move up to High-A Wilmington.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Brady House: Ruled out for 2022
Single-A Fredericksburg manager Jake Lowery said Monday that House (back) won't play again in 2022 but should be a full participant for spring training, Joey LoMonaco of The Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star reports.
The 19-year-old shortstop thus concludes his second professional season with a .278/.356/.375 slash line to go with three home runs and one stolen base over 202 plate appearances at Fredericksburg. Even though he's been ruled out from playing again in 2022, House could remain with Fredericksburg for the rest of the minor-league season to continue his rehab program for the back injury....

Nationals' Brady House: May not return this season
House (back) may not return to game action until fall instructs, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.
The Nationals hope to get House back before the end of the minor-league season, but that is not a given. The No. 11 overall pick in last year's draft, House slashed .386/.463/.529 with two home runs in his first 16 games of the season at Single-A but saw his line dwindle to .208/.283/.274 with one home run over his next 29 games. This back issue may have been a big reason for his struggles after getting off to such a great start.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Brady House: Shut down to manage workload
House is dealing with a back injury that has kept him sidelined since June 11. He is being held out in an effort to manage his workload, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
The 2021 first-round pick hasn't played for Single-A Fredericksburg since June 11, but it's all part of the Nationals' plan. "We're putting the [focus] on playing deep into the season, through the minor league season and being available beyond," Nats general manager Mike Rizzo said Friday. "Because our plan is always to play through October... I think we've kind of adapted that, kind of morphed into that being the best way to achieve the goals. The goal for player development is to develop these guys mentally, physically and emotionally to finish a full major league season." House was in a bit of a funk at the plate when he was shut down, batting .268 (11-for-41) through 11 games in June with only one extra-base hit (a double) and a 1:14 BB:K, and Rizzo indicated the 19-year-old wouldn't return to the lineup for Fredericksburg until early July....

Nationals' Brady House: Placed on injured list
House was placed on the 7-day minor-league injured list for an undisclosed reason Thursday, Bobby Blanco of MASNSports.com reports.
House hasn't played at Single-A Fredericksburg since June 11 and is apparently dealing with an injury that will force him to miss at least another week. The 19-year-old also dealt with an unspecified injury in May that forced him to miss two weeks, but it's not yet clear how much time he'll miss during his current IL stint.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Brady House: Back in action at Single-A
House (undisclosed) has gone 1-for-4 with a run and three RBI in his two games for Single-A Fredericksburg since being reinstated from the 7-day injured list Friday.
House was sidelined for just under two weeks with an unspecified injury. The 2021 first-round pick has been struck by three pitches in his two games since returning and has now been plunked a total of six times through 23 contests on the season. While House hasn't suffered any apparent setbacks as a result of being hit by the pitches, it could increase his risk of injury if the trend persists throughout the season.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Brady House: Out with undisclosed injury
House has not played for Single-A Fredericksburg since May 1 and is on the 7-day injured list with an undisclosed injury.
Prior to the injury, House had been one of the better performers from the 2021 draft class. He hit .326/.408/.449 with two home runs, 26 strikeouts and 10 walks in 21 games. House has monster raw power, but the development of his hit tool will be critical for him to reach his ceiling as a cleanup-hitting shortstop or third baseman.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Brady House: Raking to begin season
House went 2-for-6 with a home run and four RBI for Single-A Fredericksburg on Sunday.
The 11th overall pick in the 2021 Draft, House is still only 18 years old but has been tearing up full-season ball, slashing .379/.455/.530 through 15 games for Fredericksburg with two homers and 23 RBI. His 22.1 percent strikeout rate and 9.1 percent walk rate are both very encouraging, and while the Nationals won't want to rush him up the ladder, they also might have little choice but to promote him to High-A over the summer just to keep him challenged. House was already a borderline top-50 dynasty prospect, but his stock could rise rapidly if he keeps this up.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Brady House: Could begin season at Low-A
Nationals director of player development De Jon Watson said Saturday that House has a "really good chance" to begin the 2022 campaign at Low-A Fredericksburg, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.
House was selected by the Nationals with the 11th overall pick in the 2021 first-year player draft, and he impressed in rookie ball late in the year. The 18-year-old appeared in 16 games and slashed .322/.394/.576 with four homers, 14 runs and 12 RBI. He has plenty of power potential but carries some risk with his hit tool and strikeouts. He alleviated those concerns across a limited sample during his first taste of minor-league action, and he'll likely be rewarded with a promotion sooner rather than later.... See More ... See Less
